This video takes a deep dive into the theory behind hard stop homing. Learn how to easily implement hard stop homing in a Studio5000 project using our freely available Add On Instruction (AOI). This video is a good primer on hard stop homing whether or not you’re using EtherNet/IP communications or an Allen-Bradley PLC to command motion. The video also provides a sneak peak at one of the linear actuators from our yet-to-be-released MCB product line.
All of the EtherNet/IP Tutorial videos in this series are available in this YouTube playlist.
The demo in this video makes use of Application Note 46 – EtherNet/IP for Add On Instructions for RSLogix, which can be downloaded from our Application Notes page
